    Avengers: Endgame

    (Note: I don’t use Letterboxd as a forum for professional reviews. It’s a place to air my personal snap reaction. To hear me discuss my issues with this movie more analytically, click here.)

    This movie is a poisonous, pandering, infantilizing nightmare that people will eat up because it gives the illusion of depth and feeling while offering easy answers and quick solutions. Its writers are either insidiously callous or tremendously ignorant. I pray that anyone effected by this film never experiences any real pain. They’ll snap under the weight of it.

    This film was so intense that it almost sent my wife into early labor.
